How did the Hebrews turn White? A slide pops up listing the Black Israelites' six contributions to world culture during their time in Egypt. Given a renewed sense of despair among many African Americans it is far from surprising that Kendrick Lamar and other celebrities would embrace aspects of Hebrew Israelite beliefs.
Second, in verse 7a he says it a little differently, but makes the same point: Nor are they all children because they are Abraham's descendants.” In other words, he is distinguishing here between two kinds of children” — there are all of Abraham's descendants, and there is a narrower group in that number whom he calls here the children,” or we could say, the true children” since the others are physical children also.

Israel is mentioned in the bible over 2,500 times. Many people may say that the Jews are back in Israel(1948) just as scripture says, but there is absolute proof that those that call themselves Israelis or Jews are imposters. Israelites did not exist 3200 years ago.

The closest to 400 years of slavery ever to happen, was 430 years in Egypt 3. It's been since the year 1619 (Transatlantic Slave Trade) that the Israelites got to the "strange" land (America, etc.) of where they have been mistreated, and it will last for 400 years.
Consequently, the Black Hebrew doctrine conflicts with the ethnic diversity of African Americans.
